Health professionals have an obligation to undertake continuing professional development to maintain their professional registration. Doctors, nurses and some allied health professionals (such as physiotherapists) are required to demonstrate to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) that they have completed appropriate development programs annually.
ANZSOM provides continual professional development opportunities via online learning resources, the Annual Scientific Meeting and state branch meetings. Generally these activities are not formally accredited with the Royal Australian College of Nursing, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners or Royal Australasian College of Physicians (AFOEM), which affects how members claim their CPD points with these bodies.
For details regarding profession-specific CPD requirements and how ANZSOM CPD contributes, download the document below or for more details please contact your governing / registration body directly.
Certificates of completion are no longer provided since the transition to hosting presentation-based (audio & powerpoint presentation) directly onto the members-only section. However, you can record the dates of completion for each module in the My Profile section.
